mitt romney as a shoe in despite the polling. they suggested their secret sauce that's more important than the polling is that mr. romney is winning independents. so there. romney has this thing in the bag. carl rove, for the republicans this year, he took to "the wall street journal" this week to patiently explain to the people who don't understand that these numbers that look so bad for mr. romney do not matter or they are wrong. or they are wrong and they don't matter. because he says democrats are not winning early voting by enough. and he says the polls make assumptions about turnout that he describes as absurd. it also describes some stuff that makes him believe romney is going to win like crowd size and closing arguments. that shows that mitt romney is totally going to win this thing. both are trying to convince the country it's obvious they are going to win. it's worth listening to the arguments and checking to see if the arguments are based in good sense. but honestly, it's also worth recognizing that every campaign on both sides does this every time. for example, here is how
of mitt romney among likely voters in the battleground states of virginia. in virginia, a reuters poll has president obama at 49% and mitt romney at 45%. in florida, reuters has president obama at 48% and mitt romney at 46%. in michigan, a ppp poll has president obama at 52% and mitt romney at 46%. and in colorado, a ppp poll has president obama at 50% and mitt romney at 46%. in new hampshire, a new england college poll has president obama at 50% and mitt romney at 44%. tonight, nate silver the "new york times" blog forecasts that president obama has an 81% of winning re-election and that he will win 304 electoral college votes and mitt romney will within 234. and the great thing about next week is i will no longer have to say ppp poll. i'm done with that poll. these polls are tight. these polls, you know, i refuse to use the language the poll shows president obama winning 50, because every one of these polls is within the margin of error. every one of them. so they are really showing something that could be a tie, could be tight. for incumbents this is not considered particularly strong p
reported earlier in the week in critical swing state of ohio, romney is leading in that poll, 50-48. the importance of winning that state cannot be understated. perhaps nobody knows the politics of the buckeye state better than my next guest. joining me from cleveland, ohio, governor john kasich. >> before we get started. i want to say to the listeners, i hope we're saying our prayers to folks on the east coast that have been hard hit, out here in the buckeye stated, our hearts go out to you on and so do our prayers. stay strong and we'll do what we can to help. >> sean: america always rises to the occasion. the tsunami happened. that the people we are. we thank you for that. i to have tell you the devastation on long island. new jersey, entire communities are wiped out. it's going to take a while to rebuild. let me first ask you, governor, there was a report today, it was the drudge report, more voters are selecting romney on the machine in marion, ohio and it shows up obama. have you looked into these problems? are you concerned about 30 some days with voting in ohio? >> we hav
. if the bipartisan battle ground poll shows that mitt romney could pull off a victory next week, at the top of the hour we'll tell you exactly how much of the vote he could get. and also right now, let's go to sandra smith, she's at the cme in chicago, and sandra there's actually trading going on today and of course we're following oil and gold and gas closely because of the refineries, shut down due to the hurricane. all of this, what are you hearing? >> from the energy department. crude oil prices getting a pop right now. and back off near $86 a barrel and while gasoline prices which rose yesterday in anticipation of those refinery closures, they're sort of flat, going back down in today's session. and the energy department saying that u.s. gasoline supplies, along the u.s. east coast, may sink, charles, to their lowest levels since at least 1990's and those refineries if they can't curb production, some of them shut production altogether and also, charles out, important for traders to keep in mind, energy department saying they're delaying the weekly inventory report and remember, that's
what? both iowa and wisconsin we've also heard that romney poll watcher volunteers were given misinformation about what kind of i.d. you need to have when you go to vote. they will actually be doing the job incorrectly when they get there. it's all a coincidence though, martin. i don't want to you think there's any kind of, you know, right wing conspiracy to any of that. >> i feel -- listening to karen finney i just feel better. but i do think this is bigger than this election. this is the oldest battle in american democracy. if you define democracy as everyone being able to technically vote, we are a very young democracy from just the civil rights era. if you define it as being able to vote without barriers, it's still indanger. >> i wish we had more time. stay with us. much more ahead. look, if you have copd like me, you know it can be hard to breathe, and how that feels. copd includes chronic bronchitis and emphysema. much more ahead. spiriva helps control my copd symptoms by keeping my airways open for 24 hours. plus, it reduces copd flare-ups. spiriva is the only once-dai
for mitt romney. finishing where it began at. new hampshire. the daily tracking poll has governor romney maintaining the 2.lead within a margin of error. also the new abc poll with a one point* lead there in with -- within one-tenth of one percentage point*. at the same time obama was up five points and ultimately won by 6%. 2004 rasmussen project did a victory for president bush and one by the same margin. another poll shows them both died at 36% that same poll shows governor romney 14 pointed vantage on like we've voter turnout that could be the key putting the campaign over the top in the swing states. clear politics has wisconsin as a tossup the latest poll has a candidates' tied at 49%. the president by a margin of 56% is now tied. 16 electoral votes considered a tossup of brand-new detroit poll has a president up by three. to poll have governor romney in the lead for colorado. rasmussen has 50/46 nrg has set at one. obama's stopped and ohio everyday trying to get that 18 votes although romney shows a 2.eight. we will examine all of the members tonight. we have joe trip the special
consistently shown romney with a slight lead since, you know, mid october or so, but the state polls continue to show obama with a, some advantages in the electoral votes, so, i think both sides are looking at the polls and seeing hope. >> dan, let's step back briefly here, how important is this election? we always say the elections are the most important in x years, but i think this is the most important election since ronald reagan certainly in terms of setting the direction of the country and validating or not the huge expansion of government that barack obama has promoted in the first term. >> i agree, paul. i mean, historically the country is divided in the past century between the private economy and the public government. and there's always been a division of duties there. barack obama is trying to take spending from 20% of grosse pointe woods over the last 25 years up to about 23%. >> paul: for the starters. >> for starters and plus, make the federal government the lead role in the direction of the economy in a way that no previous president has ever done and i think that that is the
probably end up in obama's camp. >> i just look at the polls when we started the program. romney is up by one pnt or two. >> you can pick your polling and in virginia, because another shows that obama is up in virginia. but he has been running strong in virginia, and with the heavy onslaught by romney, it still shows the northern virginia area, which will be very important, but much supports barack obama. >> new hampshire could be in play. >> new hampshire traditionally was a republican state did it only became a presidentially democratic relatively recently. >> when bartlet came along. "west wing." >> unless he gets a surge that covers most of the states, it if he loses ohio and iowa or ohio and wisconsin, he has to run the table in everyone. >> you get confused unless you are i just keep trying to figure out the permutations. everybody agrees that the path is clear and simpler for obama and romn. it is ccbc the combination -- >> a lot of talk about potential ties. >> which i think it's a reach. but let's be blunt, the momentum is in romney's direction and has been since the first deb
there. >> well, the reason for that, tamron, is the internal polls for the obama campaign and romney campaign are very different. the obama campaign thinks it's up in most of the swing states, but the romney polls show a different story. the public polls show that president obama sleis leading m romney by a decent-sized margin in pennsylvania. >> thank you very much, chris and erin. i know it's a tough conversation. your attention is focused on all the people greatly affected by the storm and also on politics. it's important. search and rescue operations are in progress in atlantic city, new jersey with new video coming in plus the floodwaters still inundating atlantic city. dozens were trapped by floodwaters in their homes and emergency shelters after in some cases ignoring mandatory evacuation orders to move inland. in the meantime the city's mayor fought back against criticism about governor christie he allowed people to shelter in the city. the atlantic city mayor joins us by phone. thank you for your time. >> you're welcome. good afternoon. >> before i get into this, give me an
. >> i think it doesn't make sense obama can hold off romney in wisconsin you're seeing a surge in polls for mitt romney you're seeing him probably going to take florida in most of the battle grounds. and i don't know why in and and scott walker earlier this summer by the national party hundreds and paul ryan saying i just don't know how they couldn't win wisconsin. if you look, it's tied oof 20 seconds, steve on your home state of wisconsin. >> it's a fact there is a dry run on june 5th. i think it suggests wisconsin is in play. if they make efforts to put there, i think republicans can win it. >> viewers should go to gretawire.com. about what it's done since 1996. keeps swinging back and forth will make you dizzy. panel just stand by. straight ahead four americans murdered in ben gazy. we don't know what happened. will it impact elections? next. look, if you have copd like me, you know it can be hard to breathe, and how that feels. copd includes chronic bronchitis and emphysema. spiriva helps control my copd symptoms by keeping my airways open for 24 hours. plus, it reduces copd flare-
us a look at early voting. polls showing governor romney leading president obama 52% to 45% among voter who's already cast their ballots. newt gingrich joins us, good evening, sir. your thoughts on the gallup poll of early voters? >> if it's accurate it's devastating for obama. obama played a tremendous amount of effort into building a ground game. they're confident they can turn the vote out early. they talked about it with a sense of achievement. if this is correct, it's a remarkable result. republicans have been saying during all of the snap shots well, don't worry about early voting because republican voters tend to be older, they love to vote on election day. all of a sudden these numbers i'm surprised and i frankly thought i would not have been surprised to see it reversed and see it obama, 52, romney, 45. so this is a shocking number. but it fits something that you may have seen late last week. gallup took all of this september questions, 19,000 people pretty big universe. looking at all of them together as one group. and said the surprise is that this electorate looks more
: >> mitt romney will not be president unless he outperforms the polls if the polls are not capturing the intensity behind mitt romney's superintendent porers or in some way they're exaggerating president obama's support -- gwen: where is the intensity right now? is it with the republicans or the democrats? >> we have it equal. in our polls they're equally inspired. that's exactly right. >> republicans think they have an advantage. >> it's dispor portion -- disproportion nat with white voters. african-americans are also pretty energized but latinos which the president is dominating are not. young voters are not. both of those are underperforming in terms of interest in the election and motivation. that's where the president's challenge is. he's got to make sure that he could harvest all the votes that shows up in these polls from latinos and from young voters. >> and gwen, just to follow on amy's point, barack obama sbrang to celebrity status with that speech of not white america, red, america. if he wins he's going to win because he was the president of black america, hispanic americ
of polling for mitt romney, top staffers held a conference call with reporters in which they enumerated all their reasons why they see mitt romney as a shoo-in to beat the president on tuesday despite all the latest battleground state polling. they suggested that their secret sauce that is more important than the polling is that mr. romney is winning independents. so there. romney has this thing in the bag. karl rove who is running the biggest dark money operation for the republicans this year, and therefore is as influential as ever, mr. rove took to "the wall street journal" this week to patiently explain to all these people who don't understand that these numbers that look so bad for mr. romney do not matter, or they're wrong. or they're wrong and they don't matter. because he says democrats are not winning early voting by enough. and he says the polls make assumptions about turnout that he describes as absurd. it also describes some intangible stuff that makes him believe mitt romney is going to win, things like crowd size and closing arguments. according to him, all of that stuff toget
giving us a sneak peek. polls showing governor romney leading president obama among voter who's have already cast the ballot. our panel is back. and byron, your thoughts? >> this is a big deal. because at the same time in 2008, fwal updid the same poll. and barack obama was leading john mccain among early voters. in several key states ob dwrauma had a huge lead. he needs to do that again. romney likely to win amongst those voter who's go to the polls on election day itself. he build up a lead that his opponent can't overtake him on election day. i was in ohio. the campaign was making a huge deal. the president saying on the stump and campaign officials were saying it. people going door to door were pushing early voting. >> unless this reflects early voters in ohio going to tell us if this could with 52-46. >> that is light. -- right. ohio during this storm time, this is ads and romney ran about the auto bailout whether or not goits tok shipped to china. there has been a reaction. there has been gm and chrysler officials saying ad isn't true, it's false. a tremendous push back and mor
with that poll out of ohio. romney coming on strong. it looks a real threat to your firewall? >> well, george, that's one poll. there have been several polls out there. we feel pretty good where we are. we're beating romney 3 to 1 in the early vote. our people are turning out and they're turning out in very high numbers. we feel good about ohio. we think we're going to win it. >> let's dig into that abc news/"washington post" poll, stephanie, it shows romney making headway on the economy. who's offering a clear plan. back in july, obama had a 16-point lead on that measure. today, it's tied. we know that president obama is focusing on that now. did you wait too long? >> absolutely not. i mean, you know, it's interesting that you're pointing out your national tracker poll but in the virginia poll that you just cited we are beating mitt romney in terms of who do you trust to get the economy going? in terms of the president's plans, we're happy to talk about them. the president laid them out at the convention. we ran a two-minute ad on it. we have been campaigning across the country on this plan.
energizes people to get out on voting day and go to the polls. >> we will look back if mitt romney wins and d say that the first debate was as important as the first debate in 1960, when john f. kennedy close to the experience gapap between himself and richard nixon, who had been vice president for eight years he recreated himself as moderate massachusetts mitt and that enabled him to talk to women and suburban areas. as far as richard mourdock is concerned, i will be blunt, i joe donnelly man in that race. what he was getting was a consistent principle -- you believe that god life, that the conditions s under which the creation occurred, as tragic and personally painful as it might be -- he was talking about th life e to he was not defending the method -- >> which he ied to make clear. [ mitt romney ] we have to work on a collaborative basis. look, the reason i'm in this race is there are people thatre really hurting today in this country. and we face this deficit -- could crush the future generations.mocrats both love america but we need to have leadership -- leadership
argument to continue to pound governor romney? >> first of all, candy, i'm happy to go poll to poll for you, but let's set aside the polls for a second. the governor's closing -- the president's closing message is exactly what i said before, which is we've made some progress. we have to build on that process, and we have to move forward in a way that builds an economy that works for the middle class. what we can't can't do is go back to the failed policies of the past. governor romney, the centerpiece and really the only piece of his plan that is real is this $5 trillion tax cut. $2 trillion in extra spending for the pentagon. no plan to pay for, it and deregulate wall street. this is what's going to move us forward, and that's not going to move us forward. >> i asked you this because in general closing statements, as you know, tend to turn back to the positive side and there is an argument that a candidate still is pounding his adversary at this point is worried. >> well, candy, if you have been traveling with governor romney, he is pounding us pretty hard as well because this is a close e
because the polls are so close. michigan is tied, wisconsin is tied, colorado, romney is up, virginia he's up, florida he's up, and we have rasmussen now showing the moment ump has shifted in ohio. if i'm barack obama, there's no poll now moving in his direction, juan, and states that he won by huge margins, he's either tied or just slightly ahead. that's a problem for him. >> well, look. i don't think anyone debates the idea it's going to be a very close race, but the numbers you put out. >> sean: which ones? >> they're all sided. >> ask juan about the npr poll. >> go ahead, dana. >> let's talk about the npr poll. an 8-point swing? >> there's a margin of error, dana. hold on. dana was around in '08, i'm sorry, back in '04 when the poll said that kerry was going to win in a landslide. didn't happen, did it? >> thank goodness. >> that's right, dana. just think for a second. romney has never been ahead. >> sean: he's ahead now. >> in the real clear politics. >> sean: juan, juan, juan. >> colorado, wisconsin. i can keep going. never, ever. >> sean: listen, you can be as delusional if you wa
week from today, the latest national polls show the momentum is still very much with mitt romney. juan is very worried, and then the most vial pro obama ad to date, this one courtesy of left winger michael moore. we'll play it for you tonight and it will make you sick as >> sean: in just one week voters head to the polls and decide what is without question the most important election of our lifetime and with just seven days remaining until the race for the white house concludes we can report the momentum is on the side of governor mitt romney. according to the latest gallup survey his lead is at 5 points, 51 to 46%. in addition, gallup it reporting that romney is outpacing his opponent in a big way when it comes to early voting. unlike in 2008 when obama led senator john mccain by 15 points in early voting, in 2012 it's romney that's now running ahead by an impress impressiven points. 52% of the ballots have been cast in romney's favor. it's an eight point swing, by the way, in only four weeks. with all of those numbers in mind it's not surprising that the bi-partisan battleground mod
one daily tracking poll has mitt romney up by two points. but a new poll just out shows obama up by several points, leading in wisconsin, new hampshire and iowa. >> back and forth, back and forth. >> you can stay more collected -- more connected than ever before. a reminder of what these types of storms can do. maryland was very lucky this week. there is no doubt about that. >> cleanup has begun a long pitcher's east shore, but what do you do about this? is brand-new, carved out as the storm ripped through the barrier island on monday night. the house is now flattened or moved or stuck. >> i don't know where the house came from. the bridge of his peers were used to join the main road. the houses were someplace else for monday night. there are those who were moved there. >> it is phenomenal. this is what the town looked like before monday. now it is gone. and tune has been pushed into the homes and streets. all along is destruction. house is piled onto one another and others burned to the ground. in seaside heights, both amusement peers are gone. this is what it used to look like
